The Lyrics

There's a very distinct difference between "returning a favour" and "demanding that someone returns a favour" that's just lost on some people...
I comped you, so comp me
No-fee'd you, no-fee me
So wrong, dude, to wrong me
No bill for you, don't bill me
I comped you, so comp me
I freed you from fees, please
Just stop, dude, don't wrong me

A favour was made for you
I think it should be returned
Is your intent here to burn me? No way
You can trust me

Didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin' (cryin', cryin')
Because your cash, cause your cash, cause your cash was dryin' (dryin', dryin')?
Risked my job, you know, so I could lend you a hand, no denyin' (-nyin, -nyin)
And so I don't, so I don't, so I don't think I'm whinin' (whinin', whinin')

I comped you, so comp me
Who fee'd you? Not me, see
Who stuck you with nought? Me
A bill from you? No sense, please

No, I didn't follow you
To figure out where you work
Cause I'm convinced there's a perk since you payed
My bill for me

Sayin' my, sayin' my, sayin' my cash ain't dryin' (dryin', dryin')?
That's not a lie, not a lie, not a lie, but I'm findin'
That no-one should know, just be a friend for now, don't be so tryin' (tryin', tryin')
And call me out, call me out, call me out here for lyin' (lyin', lyin')

Tit-for-tat, you know, don't be a dick, you've really got me sighin'
I know that I, know that I, know that I might seem tryin' (tryin', tryin')

I comped you, so comp me
A fee? You can't fee me
I got you off scot-free
I'm rich, it's true, work with me

I have no idea why, but before I heard this song I had this expectation in my head of a band named "Cheap Trick" to be a punk rock group or something. Then my speakers started blaring "I Want Mr. Blue Sky to Want Me" and now I don't know what to believe.
